An alarming trend seems to be catching on with popular merchants lately. The trend isrepparttar tendency for some of these companies to begin discriminating against new or inexperienced affiliates and actually FIRE them! Removing an unproductive affiliate is understandable; however, having a ridiculous screening process that only allows websites with thousands of visitors to squeeze through almost seems ridiculous. Now in defense of merchants and affiliate programs: If a program finds that one of their affiliates is using their company’s banner and link on “unethical” or completely unrelated websites, then yes, that affiliate should be dropped.

The bottom line is that affiliate marketing is still a young, but powerful industry with MUCH room for growth. The only way we can fuel this growth is if we providerepparttar 151151 proper training torepparttar 151152 new members. If we just firerepparttar 151153 new members and userepparttar 151154 “no experience” excuse, then how are we ever going to expandrepparttar 151155 industry? We at The Affiliate Classroom have spentrepparttar 151156 last few weeks getting to know many affiliate managers and companies on a personal level and have asked them questions about this matter. My conclusion is that every affiliate should be given a chance. If “deleted” fromrepparttar 151157 system, there should be a very good reason. In some of our research, as we read some ofrepparttar 151158 terms of service, we were surprised to find some “credible” affiliate programs who were dropping affiliates if they did not earn a certain “minimum” in a given period. In my opinion, that is simply ridiculous. Here is our personal opinion and conclusion regarding this matter:
